The staff are very un friendly, you walk past and they completely ignore you, especially when you go into the cafe. Animals do not have proper enrichment items, hardly any infact. Some animals enclosures of very small/old. Very odd Place. (read more)

Came to Hamerton zoo today with my two children, although very very warm it was a good day out with plenty to do, they loved it. My only downside was theres not enough seating around the park for the eldery and pregnant people like myself, also the cafe was very expensive. Other than that it was brilliant. (read more)

My expectations were not great after reading other reviews on this zoo and judging by the admission price being so much more reasonable than other zoos, however I had a thoroughly enjoyable few hours. The animal enclosures were very clean and the animals all looked happy and well cared for. You could get a lot closer to these animals than other zoos I've been to and although there are not a huge variety of animals there there was enough to see to keep my 7 year old more than happy. A...

Animals were very clean but because of the way some of the enclosures are set out you can't see the animals. I thought it was expensive and would not travel a long way to go there. It was all over in a couple of hours (and we didn't rush round). Seems they had duplicated some of the animals just to fill up the space. Coffee was expensive particuarly as it comes out of a machine. (read more)

A young zoo, quite small, but with a surprisingly versatile collection of animals. We particularly enjoyed the Lar Gibbons, as there was a 4 month old baby going about with Mum in the enclosure. The zoo is small, but they are improving and expanding, currently building enclosures for several animals, including anteaters. Some beautiful animals there though, Binturong, Aardwolves, Lemurs and Gibbons, along with some of the more 'usual' animals such as Donkeys and Camels. Cheap as chips, and a... (read more)

We went to Hamerton Zoo a few days ago but wouldn't go back. I think if it was on a really dry day it would be ok, but one of the big attractions that we had been told about was the great play area. It was waterlogged and we were up to our ankles in muck! All the pieces of equipment had a huge muddy puddle around them. We just found it wasn't great compared to other zoos we have been to. At least we just paid £25.20 for the 4 of us to get in. ( Prices due to go up on 1st March 2011).
The... (read more)

It was very cold and raining so all the animals were inside . The ones that were out did not look happy at all . Was a bit annoyed by the fact it was full price in the winter season which was compounded by the miserable woman on reception and the 3.00 pound I paid for two cups of coffee in small paper cups , which came out of the same vending machine we have at work which costs 20p each to both staff and customers. I would think this would be a much better day out in the summer. (read more)

I went to Hamerton Zoo Park last year with a friend and her 5 year old and was totally bowled over! I went thinking it would be goats, donkeys and the odd reptile, and found to my delight it was like a proper zoo with beautiful tigers, cheetahs, meercats to name but a few.
The surroundings of the eanimals were great too, not just small cages and the like, so it was a pleasant suprise.
Very nice little cafe and the play area went down really well too.
Would thorughly recommend this to... (read more)
